    JeffB,

    I do not know of any mfr's of products that have paid MCS, and are not MCS-accredited, but there may well be some?
    Boiler tested efficiencies are available : http://www.ncm-pcdb.org.uk/sap/podpage.jsp?id=6
    MCS-Accreditation is a process I do not get involved with, altho' I imagine Ted on here can give you the inside-track?

    Cheers..:smile:

    Thanks for the link. There are only 11 wood pellet boilers listed and mine (Ekopower) is not one of them. Does this mean that I have to chase the manufacturer to supply BRE with the necessary data?

    Atomicbisf - sorry, I appear to have hijacked your thread. Would you like me to start a new one specifically dealing with this issue regarding wood pellet boilers and EPC's?

    Hi Jeff, don't worry it seems pretty appropriate here! :bigsmile:

    atomicbisf - ok, thanks. I am not the only one with this problem - see link below:

    http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/70657

    which I came across on the YouGen website. There is something fundamentally amiss here!

    Posted By: SigaldryIf you know the ratings, presumably you know the RRN (reference number). In which case, go to: https://www.epcregister.com/epcadviser.html and you can find out what your calculations are based on / how they could be improved.

    Doesn't seem to work for new build ones though.

    Is the www.epcregister.com site England & Wales only?

    If so does anyone know of a Scottish equivalent?

    Thanks. I'd found that & similar. There appear to be plenty of places that can show the EPCs (e.g. as a pdf),

    www.epcregister.com however offers rather more than that. Once you've selected an EPC it allows you to add or remove various improvements & see how that affects the rating.

    There's a Northern Ireland one as well.

    But more to the point, viewing EPC's is fine if it's your own, or if you are buying or considering buying, or renting, or considering renting a property.

    Otherwise I'm fairly sure you're not allowed to / not supposed to...

    (according to the terms and conditions bit you have to tick).

    Probably won't get into trouble - but just be aware of the possibility when looking at all your neighbours ratings! (with their permissions...)

    You can look for any EPCs if you have the postcode or RRN.
    Tick the box, don't do anything naughty with the info, and be as nosy as you like.... :cool:
